Brooklyn Food Not Bombs serves free food at the northwest corner of Von King/Tompkins Park on (most) Saturday afternoons at 3pm. They use the kitchen at 123 Community Space. This Friday they’re hosting a benefit for 123.
The star of the event is Brownbird Rudy Relic, the world’s first and only Straight-Edge Vegan Chicano Blues musician (and SuperVegan’s newest blogger!). Also performing will be John Houx and Orb Mellon. Non-musical attractions include vegan food and drink, a “free store” (maybe that’s people giving away stuff they don’t want?), and a dumpster diving competition (which I hope involves hitting actual neighborhood dumpsters, not a refrigerator box full of foam). Suggested donation of $5 plus some food for FNB to cook up–a dry, uncooked, vegan staple such as pasta or beans.
Friday, October 3
8pm to midnight
